    These are wonderful!!! Great job, Monica. And I have to say, I'm always so impressed by your articulation and phrasing. Exactly what is written. Note to self: I should work on that more.

    Anyway, I really enjoyed these.

    Yes, great recordings... I can't keep up with you :) Please tell me, how do you learn so many pieces in such a short time with that quality??
    I'm confused... How many Album-leaves did Grieg write? There are several...

    I've done the server thing.
    Please provide correct ID3 tags when you upload tracks (there is a topic about that somewhere).

    No there is not. I have looked and asked for this to be explained several times.

    Thanks, guys. :)

    Yeah, it confuses me too. I wonder why composers use the name 'leaves'.

    You as a native English speaker should know better than me ;) I think It sounds just more poetic than "page" or something like that...

    Right, as the Oxford English Dictionary defines:

    One of the folds of a folded sheet of paper, parchment, etc.; esp. one of a number of folds (each containing two pages) which compose a book or manuscript, a folio; hence, the matter printed or written thereon.

    Ok, thanks, Julius. I should have known that. I'm too tired today.
    So if leaves or leaf is like a page, then Four Album Leaves should really be called Four Albums, Twelve Leaves, since there are twelve pages in the set. :lol:

    And in Grieg's language, it is Album Blad, or something like that. (Norwegian, I guess) This is what I first saw and thought it was like 'ballade'.
